I have this lovely group of ladies who live in my neighborhood. We often get together and call it “book club.” Really though, there are no books. There are just bottles of wine and amazing snacks. The best, right?

One of my neighbor friends makes an amazing cold BLT Dip. I think I ate half of it myself when she brought it to “book club.” I decided to make a hot version for this holiday season because it is so easy and will be a hit at your parties.

HOW TO MAKE BLT DIP

The only time intensive step to this recipe is making the bacon. For a short cut, make your bacon in the oven.

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the sour cream, mayonnaise and room temperature cream cheese.
  2. Beat in the onion powder and garlic powder.
  3. Stir in the cooked bacon, green onions, and tomato.
  4. Bake.
  5. Remove from the oven and top with remaining lettuce, tomatoes, and bacon pieces.
  6. Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.

MAKING AHEAD OF TIME

You can make the mixture for this recipe ahead of time, with one change.

Make it up to the point where you are stirring in the fresh ingredients. Stir in all of the bacon (not saving any for serving on top), but then stop. Transfer to an airtight container and store for up to two days.

When you are ready to serve, take it out of the refrigerator, give it a good stir and then stir in the onions and tomatoes. Bake as directed.

SERVING

I love serving this recipe with a sturdy cracker, pretzel flats, or tortilla chips.

This BLT Dip is gluten free, so it is a great dip for those with that dietary need. Just be sure to serve it with gluten free crackers. I love Nut Thins for that.

This recipe is also Keto friendly! If you have guests coming over that are following a low carb diet, serving this with cucumber slices is a great idea.

This dip makes four cups – a great amount for a small get together, and still perfect for a big party with lots of other appetizers.

Serves: 16 servings
(tap # to scale)
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes
Total: 55 minutes
BLT Dip is an easy to make crowd pleaser. Make this last minute dip any time you are entertaining and watch it disappear!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bacon diced and cooked until crisp
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sour cream (I used reduced fat)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (I used light)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tomato seeds removed and diced (see note)
  • 3 green onions sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 cups mild cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 or 3 leaves Romain lettuce chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cook the diced bacon until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to remove from the skillet, transfer to a paper towel lined plate, and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, use a hand held mixter to beat together the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise. Add the onion powder and garlic powder and beat in.
  • Reserve about 1/4 cup of bacon and set aside. Reserve about 1/4 cup of diced tomatos and set aside.
  • Stir the rest of the bacon, the rest of the tomoatoes, all of the shredded cheese and all of the green onions into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Transfer the mixture to a 2 quart baking dish and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Top with the reserved bacon, tomatoes, and diced lettuce. Serve with chips or crackers.

Notes

I didn’t want the excess moisture of the tomato seeds in this dip. However, I did want the flavor that they contain. I compromised by using cherry tomatoes on top and the rest of the tomato in the dip. If you don’t want to buy both, just go with the whole seeded tomato in the dip.
